Syrian Community Rallies to Demand End of Siege on Aleppo

Aleppo, Syria is rapidly being destroyed. Known as the world’s oldest city, it is being devastated by hundreds of air strikes in the past few days by Syrian regime and Russian warplanes. They are using banned weapons which are burning children and women. One word echoes amongst civilians in Aleppo: “doomsday”. Hundreds of civilians -children and women included- are dying every hour in Aleppo and Idlib.

This onslaught is what prompted several members of the local Syrian community and supporters to rally outside the White House this afternoon to draw public attention to the crisis and demand the Obama administration take immediate action to bring an end to the travesty.

The protesters then marched to the 1125 16th Street, NW home of Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak to further their demands.
